How can environmentally themed documentaries be used as a springboard for community action, rather than to simply inform the public on an important issue?
Environmental film forums (EFFs) can bring community activists and experts together with local audiences to address how issues raised in the films are affecting people in their own communities. Even more importantly, though, these forums provide information on what people can do to actively engage with these issues at the local level and link to local environmental organizations.
At their best, EFFs can present the environmental crisis as an opportunity for radical creative potential.
